Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
This is an award-winning wine with crisp, fresh fruit from Gavi, a region in Piedmonte, northern Italy.
Made from the Cortese grape, it is distinctly lemony, with a tangy nectarine flavour too.
Utterly delicious, this makes a great aperitif or partner to simply grilled fish.
To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 1 year of purchase.
Giles Kime - Sunday Telegraph 16/09/2012
Of the 2011 vintage, Giles Kime said: "This delicious gavi from Piedmont in northern Italy has a refreshing, citrusy character that is a brillaint match for the textures and flavours of seafood. It also makes a great partner to simple fish dishes such as grilled sardines."
Matthew Jukes - Weekend (Daily Mail) 22/09/2012
Of the 2011 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: "I adore this Gavi and with £2 sliced off the price tag it's a steal. Clean lines and a wistful citrus aroma make it the ideal wine to accompany Lady Sybil's Poached Salmon with Hollandaise Sauce recipe. And if you fancy a glass while you're cooking, it makes for a scrummy aperitif, too!"
Jane MacQuitty - The Times 06/10/2012
Of the 2011 vintage, Jane MacQuitty said: "Tesco must sell more Gavi than the rest of the country's Italian specialists put together, so it's high time you lapped up this bold, nutty, cortese-grape special from northwest Italy."
David Williams - The Observer Magazine 29/04/2012
Of the 2011 vintage, David williams said: "Forced to choose an own-label Italian white, I'd almost always go for Piedmont's Gavi, which most supermarkets now stock, over the run-of-the-mill Pinot Grigio. Made from the Cortese grape, Tesco's consistently high-quality version is just about the perfect wine for simply prepared fish, with its very tangy citrus peel and touch of herbs in vivacious form in this new vintage."
Fratelli Martini was founded in 1947 in the Langhe area. In the 70’s the company underwent substantial technological and production development, always focusing and developing indigenous Italian grape varieties. Today 85% of production is exported.
The Gavi zone comprises 11 communes totalling 1000 hectares. Made from the best Cortese grapes grown on prime hillside vineyards. Part of the crop is late-harvested; lending extra richness to the wine.
